Aquaculture in Germany is a small industry, practiced only in a few specifically suited areas. Marine finfish farming is almost nonexistent but mussel farming is a steady activity with a notable level of production. However, this industry is presently very restricted with no hope for expansion as regulations are stringent and new licences in both fresh and marine waters are extremely difficult to obtain. In addition to State-specific conditions within the Federation, the complexity of the regulatory framework is exemplified by focusing on some key aspects for finfish farming and by specific aspects of mussel farming activities in the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea where environmental protection measures dictate the level of control, mainly as a result of the recent establishment of the National Wadden Sea Park.
